What Season Are You?

Here are my thoughts on colors for the seasons!
Who doesn’t love the seasons changing?

Lets start with Fall since it is so close I can feel it!  What a lovely month to get hitched.  The leaves are turning and falling to make a beautiful backdrop.  Put me in front of a tree and I will say “I Do!”  It is common to use reds, oranges and yellows symbolizing the leaves.  But get creative and add a few deep purples and greens.  You can have a harvest theme with wheat, wood and pumpkins or Halloween even, if you are a “die-hard” fan!
So belly up to the bar and have your wedding in a vineyard or on the coastal side with willow trees blowing.

Spring weddings: a happy, go lucky kinda season.  Pastels are popular again since the 80’s decade of peach, yellow and pink.  In order to create a beautiful backdrop you will enjoy now and 20 years from now, pair these colors less aggressive than before.  You can do a pale pink with a touch of soft yellow for flowers and have the bridesmaid dresses go either way.  But to ground these colors together without making it look like a baby shower, have the men in a khaki or tan suit.  And if you do that, nudes are also a very popular trend today. Nude shades of bridesmaid dress! A nice garden or backyard ceremony and reception are fitting for this fun and flirty color scheme and season!

Summer weddings: the temperature is warm and the colors are bright. Entertain your guest with live music and creative cocktails. Dashes of textures and patterns make the bright whites, pinks, oranges, bright blues and yellows come to life!  Seersucker, diagonal stripes, and the occasional polka dot make a grand entrance on your big day of “I Do’s”!  Summer months like May, June, July and possibly August are unlimited to the pretty palettes you can create.  Any color of the rainbow … or for the adventurous … THE rainbow. Have it at the lake, the beach or a garden! Anywhere is perfect!

Oh it’s going to be a Winter wonderland!  Winter months are such a magical time to get married. December, January, and on to February are filled with beautiful crisp, clean air and colors! The normal go around for a winter wedding consists of the blue hues with sparkles.  Add some spice with reds and whites! You can almost, weather permitting, have your wedding anywhere you want. Add some snow and everyone is sure to know its going to be a special night.  Some brave souls are adding dashes of pale pinks and purples. A beach might be out of the picture though.  A barn, vineyard, an antebellum estate or why not a nice mountain villa? Now that would be exceptionally gorgeous.
